ESCONDIDO, California – Stone Brewing, among the world’s most renowned IPA breweries, introduces a family of year-round beers to accompany its hugely popular Stone Delicious IPA. The gluten-reduced West Coast Style IPA is now joined byStone Delicious Double IPA and Stone Delicious Citrus IPA in a format hardly seen on shelves – a variety can six-pack.
The three beers of the Stone Delicious Six-Pack are individually unique recipes: The original, the sequel and the remix:
Stone Delicious IPA (7.7% ABV) packs a refreshing and hoppy lemon candy flavor that make it especially complementary to an array of foods and a superior standalone IPA.
Stone Delicious Double IPA (9.4% ABV!) stands out with a serious depth of flavor and explosive aroma of lemon and ripe fruit from Centennial and Amarillo hops. With less bitterness than a typical double IPA, this one is extra fruity, extra gratifying and extra Delicious.
Stone Delicious Citrus IPA (7.7% ABV) is brewed with Talus hops that impart vibrant citrus notes complemented by the addition of sweet orange peel. The result is especially bright and satisfyingly juicy.
Stone Delicious IPA is one of the fastest growing IPAs in the country.* Its bright, lemony-herbal intensity has made it a favorite among the most discerning craft IPA drinkers for years. It also happens to be gluten reduced, as are its two new companions. In fact, The Delicious family of beers clocks in below the FDA requirement for “gluten free” labeling (less than 20 parts per million). Since the beer is brewed with barley and the gluten is removed, Stone only gets to claim, “gluten reduced,” and that’s fine. IYKYK.
“Expanding our Stone Delicious family was a big ask for us brewers because not just any IPA can live up to this name,” explained Jeremy Moynier, Senior Manager of Brewing & Innovation. “Each of these beers share a bright, vibrant citrus-forward quality that plays out in three distinctly different ways. And that kind of variety is hard to find in a six-pack!”
